    997 GT2 RS?

    Rumours persist around the internet that Porsche will produce a 997 GT2 RS version - in limited numbers of course.

    As the editor [and others] on this forum seem to have insider knowledge, I wonder if this can be confirmed?

    My reason for asking is that my GT2 is due delivery in a few weeks and my 997 TT is nearing two years old and I'm thinking of the RS as a replacement, instead of tuning the GT2.

    Of course, I'll ask my OPC when I go to collect my new car, but they are usually in denial about anything new.

    Based on the infos I have there will be no "GT2 RS". Wouldn't fit into the Porsche product range anyhow. If I where you I would take delivery of the GT2 (the best sports car in the world Smiley) and enjoy the car Smiley

    I hear from someone in the know that Porsche will produce a GT2S run out model.

     Touch more power, facelift led rear lights + bumper and couple of other tweaks.

    Not expecting anything to write home about.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS?

    GT3 MkII and GT3RS MkII are already confirmed as far as we heard.

    Isn't the Paris Autoshow 2009 around autumn? I think they come earlier.

    The rumored GT2RS has been discussed as some sort of short term replacement for the lack of a Carrera GT successor but as far as we heard, no final decision has been taken yet.

    From a production point of view, a GT2RS shouldn't be a problem, a few tweaks here and a few tweaks there, add a couple of horses and there you go.

    Unfortunately such a car needs to be at least 20000 EUR over the GT2's price tag and I'm not sure people would spend that much money for such a car, even if it would be limited in production.

    Of course there are still rumors of a GT1 around Weissach but maybe this is just a "placeholder" for a possible Carrera GT successor.

    There is no word whatsoever of a GT2S but the 997 Turbo facelift gets a Turbo S at the end of the lifecycle around 2011 or so.

    Next year is mainly the year of the Panamera as a completely new model, this is a major rollout for Porsche under very difficult circumstances (current world financial crisis).

    RC - what is your guess (knowledge...)....will the 911 turbo (997.2) get an optional PASM Sport, as the current Carrera!?

    you will be surprised by what people are willing to spen nowadays. The SL65 Black retails for £250K over here and all 8 allocations have been paid for.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS?

    I was told that it will be a 570-580hp GT2, that has been on a diet and lost 150-200kg. 

    The person that told me this has driven the car.. And it should be out late this year.  Sorry that I can not say anything more about who told me, because then it would be too easy to know who he is..

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: 997 GT2 RS?

    what widowmaker... it'll be the devil himself! LOL

    Re: 997 GT2 RS?

    A car like that should have a racing connection to be credible, which is difficult given present rules.

    Otherwise, it would be Porsche imitating the tuners.
